We just had this tonight at a friend's for dinner, and it was fantastic. She did use some of the suggested changes - lowfat cream cheese and lowfat sweetened condensed milk. She didn't make the meringue, and used key lime juice instead of lemon, and it was absolutely to die for. It tasted rich and wonderful, and needed nothing else to make it special - no meringue, no whipped cream, just a delicious pie with the best berries of the season, nestled in a graham cracker crust. This is a winner!
